About Andre





I am currently the Leader, Knowledge Architecture at The Next Institute. If I were to chose only 5 words to describe myself I would pick; Designer, Explorer, Ecologist, Developer and Alchemist.

As an experienced entrepreneur and business leader, I have successfully acquired, developed, operated, and sold a number of businesses in the oil and gas, manufacturing, export, and knowledge industries. I have held numerous leadership positions throughout my career and consider myself a continuous and intense student of leadership.

My intention is to continue to explore new ideas, possibilities and create new solutions to complex and sometimes intractable challenges as I migrate from business leader to astute observer, commentator and thought leader to Artist. I am extremely interested in doing my part to leave the world far better than I found it.

Creativity and innovation are a couple of my key drivers and I am of the firm belief that better is always possible.
